- Retailers who prefer scalping index options as their main trading method, what’s your experiences and some observation?
- Limit/Market/SL order - which order type do you use to enter a trade? As a scalper, if you use a Market order to buy an option below the LTP, isn’t it contradictory in nature. You want the price to decline so that you can buy it but once you buy, now the price trend should reverse so that you can be profitable.
- Do you set a target or once in profit, you keep trailing your stoploss until it hits.) Do you have a fix target(either price or time) in mind?
4)How do you account for taxes,brokerage, bid-ask and slippage?
- After losing a trade, how does the size of the next trade change after a loss/win? Do you pyramid up while winning and vice-versa. Or is it constant.
- Do you prefer going with the trend and momentum or like being market neutral( i.e take both equal long and short position on different stocks)
- Another problem in scalping is of scaling up. It’s easier to make X to 5X with reasonable capital but far more difficult to make that 5X to 10X ( only doubling it instead of 5 times) using the same scalping tricks.
8)What advice( preferably not a cliché)would you like to give to other retailers?
- Can you please mention any helpful articles, newsletter, links, Reddit/Quora questions, blogs, books or any other resources you have read which you liked.
P.S. - I don’t want to know your technical analysis based entry-exit strategies.
